After an acclaimed tour of half of Europe, Thriller - Live, one of the most important tributes to the King of Pop, returns to the Lyric Theatre in London. Gary Lloyd will direct this musical that brings Michael Jackson back to life and covers the singer's greatest milestones, from his childhood with the Jackson 5, to when he became a world-class star. “I Want You Back”, “Smooth Criminal”, “ABC”, “Billie Jean”, “Can You Feel It”, “Off The Wall”, “Thriller”, “The Way You Make Me Feel”, “Beat It”, “Dirty Diana”, “They Don’t Care About Us”, and many other hits in a show unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
First performed in 2009 in London’s West End, this show about the life of this musical genius was created by friends of the Jackson family and by Adrian Grant. The production was first intended to last for a few months, but after its great success among audiences and critics alike, it was extended on various occasions and is still going strong today, so much so that it has become one of London’s longest running musicals.

Due to the architectural characteristics of the venue, a great number of seats have reduced visibility on all four floors of the theatre and in the boxes.
STALLS: With a capacity for 356 people, this is where you will find the best seats in the theatre. Located right in the middle of this section, premium seats will offer you the most immersive experience of the show. On average, seats with good visibility cost £75, but you’ll be able to find limited visibility seats from £42.
DRESS CIRCLE: Right above the Stalls, the Dress Circle has a capacity for 148 people and provides a perfect panoramic view of the stage, although some seats in this area also offer limited visibility, with important discounts.
UPPER CIRCLE: With 178 available seats, even though they are quite high up, the first two rows of the Upper Circle afford a good view of the show, and at quite a low price.
BALCONY: With a capacity for 205 people, the Balcony is by far the most affordable area. Prices in this area range from £42 for the first two rows to £32 for the rest of the seats.
How much do Thriller Live tickets cost?
Ticket prices range from £32 for seats with limited visibility or with a visual obstacle, to £88 in the premium area of the Stalls.
How can I get cheap tickets to see Thriller Live?
Due to the architecture of the venue, some seats have reduced visibility either due to their location or to pillars, hence their very low prices.
If you want great value for money, we recommend that you book tickets right next to the premium area in the Stalls. They offer the same visibility but cost £20 less. The first rows of the Dress Circle have a similar price, and they offer a perfect panoramic view of the action.
There are special group prices for groups of 8 or more people.
